Hi everyone, I have been working on the other aspects of the blog so did not have time to sit and do the actual stuff of writing the reviews. Not that those things are not important, but let’s be honest here. I love writing rather than getting on the back end trying to fix things. So let’s get started with the product review now.
The product I will be reviewing today is from Vichy. Summers are here. I mean it has been here for quite some time now. Now that monsoons have arrived I love summer a little bit more. I love summers, the sun, beaches, the fact that you can wear those pretty dresses. Coming to the product I have used Vichy’s sunscreen in the past and it one of my favourite products. This time around I thought of trying something new from the brand to review. Read on to know more if Vichy ideal Soleil invisible hydrating Mist SPF 50 is worth your money.
Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50 Product Description:
Over exposure to the sun is dangerous. Do not stay long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product because it does not provide you 100% protection. Apply the sunscreen product just before the exposure. Re-apply frequently and generously to maintain protection, especially after swimming, perspiring or towelling. Do not spray directly on the face. Avoid contact with the eyes. In case of contact with the eyes, rinse them immediately and thoroughly. Avoid contact with fabric.
The price of the Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:
INR 1950 for 200 ml.
How to use Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:
Shake the product well until you hear the ball inside the bottle moving and then spray it on your body. In case you want to use the product on your face, spray the product on your hands and then apply on the face.
Packaging of the Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:
The product comes in a bright orange tin packaging with a spray cap. You have to turn the cap to lock and unlock the bottle. It makes the product travel-friendly and spill proof. You don’t have to worry about the spillage of the product at all. You can take it to your travel destination or carry it around with you during summers in your bag easily. The bottle is light in weight making it an easy everyday choice.
Fragrance of Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:
The fragrance of the Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible hydrating mist is very mild. The fragrance is similar to its dry touch variant. It smells of medicinal sunscreen products that I have used in the past. It is not strong or irritating to the senses, it is rather mild and pleasant.
My experience with Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:
I think this is by far the best body sunscreen I have used so far. It has a good SPF content which means it works for a longer duration of time under the sun. You just have to shake the bottle and spray it on the body and then massage the product in a circular motion so that it gets absorbed into the skin. The product is supposed to be dry touch and it sure is. It readily gets absorbed into the skin as if you have nothing on. I mean when I used it, in the beginning, I went a little overboard with it as it felt like I am not wearing any product but you should not be doing that.
If you use too much of the product it will make your skin sweaty even if you have very dry skin. It made me sweat like anything and then you could see the whitish cast if you go too overboard with the product. You will get to know the amount of product you need after you use it twice or thrice. Just don’t lather the product if you feel you have nothing on your skin.
Talking about the effectiveness of the product, I would say the product works quite well for the body, but not the face. I ran out of Vichy’s sunscreen so I used this on my face. I must say not as good as the other one. The skin on your body is different and less sensitive than your facial skin. If you are not going to be out in sun for long and sit in your cabin the entire day you are good to go with this product. But, if you are going on a beach vacation or staying out in sun for long intervals you will have to apply the sunscreen in an interval two to three hours.
Pros of Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:

Cons of Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50:
- Not that effective when used as a facial sunscreen.
